In coming months, several institutions in Chicago will see changes in leadership at the top. These changes matter — for presidents, many argue, are not only managers but leaders.
Here are a few of those changes to watch out for.
First: Illinois Institute of Technology President John Anderson is stepping down in 2015. At a Fall Board of Trustees’ meeting, IIT chose current Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Alan Cramb to lead IIT in coming years. Cramb has been at IIT since 2008, and will become the 9th president of the South Side institution. For the press release, click here. A search for a new provost is under way.
Third: Timothy Killeen has been named the incoming president of the University of Illinois, with details on compensation, background and vision reported here.
And, as well, Donald Laackman of Harold Washington College (of the City College of Chicago) is Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont. (See this article). The College began a search for his successor in October.
Possibly there are more transitions under way — but this tells you – it is a dynamic world!
